Re: Water for Elephants (movie and book)

I read the book a few years back -- in large part because it was written during Nanowrimo. :) I loved it and I've been looking forward to the movie for a while. Saw it on Saturday and it lived up to expectations and hopes for me. My only caution for people is that there is violence against animals i...

Re: Chapter 4 ~ Waking Up

1. Were you at all surprised by the description Bella gave of the dullness that surrounded her life for the past four months? How did that make you feel? I wasn't surprised. Bella lost everything that mattered in her life, and so she had no clue what to do after that. From her first day in Forks, h...

Re: Chapter 3 ~ The End

1. Did you feel a sense of foreboding in this chapter? At what point did you feel what was coming? Or did it take you by surprise? Yes. Just the chapter title alone was enough to scare me into thinking that something might be seriously wrong. But I didn't know what that was. 2. Just as Bella did, h...

Re: Chapter 2 ~ Stitches

1. Were you surprised by how spiritual Carlisle is? No, not at all. In the time period where Carlise grew up, that level of spirituality was the norm. Also, Carlisle has had centuries to ponder stuff like the meaning of life. 2. What did you think about the information revealed about Edward's mothe...

Re: Chapter One ~ Party

1) When did you figure out that "Gran" was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming? When "Gran" started mirroring Bella's movements. 2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edwar...

Re: Preface

1) What were your first impressions of this section? That it was very intense, very fast paced, and that the stakes were higher than in the first book. 2) What did you think brought Bella to this place? Where, exactly, did you think they were? I had no idea. I usually don't guess on the prefaces fo...

Re: Epilogue ~ An Occasion

1. Did you figure out right away that they were on their way to prom or did you, like Bella, have something else in mind? I thought it was prom. 2. If you haven't read the extended prom remix at Stephenie's site, I encourage you to do so right now. If you have read it, do you think the shorter vers...

Re: Chapter 24 ~ An Impasse

1. Given everything we learn from Edward about the fact that he was able to stop from drinking Bella's blood, but that he didn't like how she smelled when she had a transfusion, what does that say about his control over the way he thirsts for her blood? Do you think drinking her blood makes it easi...

Re: Chapter 23 ~ The Angel

1. The chapter starts with Bella talking describing the sounds she hears because she is in too much pain to open her eyes. Were you able to put together exactly what happened, or did you have moments when you wondered what took place? It was very clear. Everything I needed to know was clear, at lea...
